Business process centric AGILE development

Have you used a business process centric approach in an Agile software project?

On the one hand, business process centricity is a "good fit" because it combines business analysis and design in one practitioner and therefore reduces time. However, process centricity demands a holistic view of what I call "process landscape" before you can design.

Do you have any experiences to share?

  1. I do agree Agile & UI design methodology dont go very well together, atleast the business process centric approach which mainly focusses from a holistic process aspect.
    Lets look this with a little different perspective,
    Agile development which claims to be a "fast to market" approach to software development is in itself a flawed methodology which drives only one thing: roll out things faster and take an iterative approach.there are reasons why these two aspects of agile dont impress me and is quiet evident that it has failed to create a change as well.

  2. Thanks, Nirmal. In spite of the flaws you mention, software firms today are quick to claim expertise in Agile development. In fact, if you suggest a method or tool or anything for use in a software project, their first question to you is "Will it work in Agile methodology?"

    Remember the study that showed something like ... 80% of reason why a software fails is because of poor Requirements? Now, doesn't Agile pay less attention to Requirements definition?

Business model intimacy

The Grameen Bank success story continues to be researched and written about. Other companies have tried to repeat the Bank's model. Is there a fundamental difference between the original innovation and the followers? In MIT Sloan Management Review (Summer 2009), Erik Simanis and Stuart Hart compare the original model with that of India-based Hindustan Unilever's model and point out a crucial difference.

Grameen Bank was a result of personal bond and shared vision between Nobel laureate Muhammad Yunus and Bangladeshi farmers/villagers. Yunus and the villagers spent quality time together as a community before the innovator launched the bank. While Grameen Bank became a profitable and scalable village bank, the authors say that Hindustan Unilever's project is "unlikely to grow into anything more than a new distribution channel." While Grameen Bank generated a "groundswell" of demand," Hindustan Unilver's entrepreneur turnov…

clinton/obama/media cabal to be exposed starting june14

A lot of people have surrendered themselves to be constantly duped by leftist media outlets.

The duped people now believe things that are entirely different from facts – as regards the obama/clinton/media cabal.

For the duped leftists, the coming Inspector General (IG) reports and follow-up actions (assuming they're both carried out unobstructed) will be a shock.

The shock will be so powerful, the duped leftists may react in insane and dangerous ways. (Well, they've already been behaving in such ways, but they've been doing so for a different set of reasons and largely unaware of facts.)

Broadly, the IG reports are going to be about treasonous/ unconstitutional/ illegal activities, power abuses, and obstructions for the purpose of:

1. Exonerating a criminal Hillary

2. Covering up the crimes of the Clinton folks

3. Attempts to block a presidential candidate

4. Attempts at a coup against a constitutionally elected president

5. Obstruction of presidential duties

6. Public deception…

Elon's April 1 tweets: part of an emerging leadership style?

First his tweets and then my comments ...

Tesla Goes Bankrupt
Palo Alto, California, April 1, 2018 -- Despite intense efforts to raise money, including a last-ditch mass sale of Easter Eggs, we are sad to report that Tesla has gone completely and totally bankrupt. So bankrupt, you can't believe it. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 1, 2018
There are many chapters of bankruptcy and, as critics so rightly pointed out, Tesla has them *all*, including Chapter 14 and a half (the worst one). — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 1, 2018
Elon was found passed out against a Tesla Model 3, surrounded by "Teslaquilla" bottles, the tracks of dried tears still visible on his cheeks.

This is not a forward-looking statement, because, obviously, what's the point?
